Below is a great geography resource that you can use to recap map skills and compass skills that you have been doing in class last term! Why not use this opportunity to learn about different counties of the UK? Which different places have you been to in the Unites Kingdom?
Fancy a challenge? Have a go at this really cool Google Geography challenge that Miss Lees has set!
Week 12 - Fair Trade
Have a look at the powerpoint to get some ideas to think about Fair Trade products. Have a look at the Fair Trade website as well to see what sort of products they offer! Do you have any Fair Trade products at home? Make a list of all the Fair Trade products you can find in your cupboards! (You might need an adult's help for this!). Here is a video clip you might like, called Guardians of the Rainforest, which talks about the importance of Fair Trade! Don't forget, the Fair Trade premium is there to help farmers and growers receive a fair price for their goods.
Below, you'll also find some other worksheets to have a go at!
Worksheet 1 - can you have a go at guessing how much each group of people involved would make from the profits of each item sold? Have a look at the answers... what do you think? Does this seem fair?
Worksheet 2 - Make a poster showing off everything you have learned about Fair Trade!
This week we will be focussed on understanding that different products are imported to and exported from the UK. Look at the PowerPoint for some of the different products we import/export. Have a look if you have some of the products in your home and look where they are from!
This week, we'll be thinking about trading. The film industry is a type of trade. We can see this when places in America (like LA) export films over to us in the UK, and when the UK export films over to America.
Learning Through Landscapes
